Summer Institute for Visual Arts at Drury University Invites Applications for Fellowships
Summer Institute for Visual Arts at Drury Universit


Established in 2007, the Summer Institute for Visual Arts at Drury University is dedicated to advanced research and practice in the field of contemporary visual arts. As part of its mission, the institute is seeking applications for its Summer 2016 Visiting Artist Fellowships program.

Each summer, SIVA offers four visiting artist fellowships alongside its Master of Arts in Studio Art and Theory program. Fellowships are awarded to a diverse group of international artists representing a range of practices and disciplines. During their five-week residency, each visiting artist fellow is provided housing, a private studio space, access to the university’s resources and facilities, and a $4,500 stipend. In turn, visiting artist fellows serve as mentors in the MART program and are responsible for managing a five-week studio course. Visiting fellows also play an active role in SIVA through studio visits, workshops, reviews, and lectures.

Applicants should be an internationally exhibiting artist who has an established body of work and notable professional experience. An MFA or equivalent, teaching experience, and a record of exhibitions and/or other activities are required. Preference will be given to candidates possessing knowledge in historical and contemporary art issues across disciplines.

See the SIVA website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
